“A haven of luxury and tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Picture a pristine ski resort, with a European feel and staying in a perfectly maintained, well managed boutique hotel, staffed by a passionate, committed, proud team and you begin to get the feel of the lumière. I travel a lot and so have high expectations of properties that describe themselves as 'luxury'. The lumière is top class and deserves this description. One thing I particularly loved was the tasteful homeliness of the apartments and the high end appliances - especially the shower and the big Wolf oven and hob, what a treat!

What really made it a wonderful experience for my husband and myself was the genuine care for us as customers. We are from the UK and will make the long journey back to lumière as it is such a unique and special place to stay.

Huge thanks to Bas, Clare and ALL the team, including the ladies who took care of our room twice a day, the guys who took care of our car, the team at breakfast who made sure we always had toast and orange marmalade :-) and to everyone else working so hard behind the scenes to ensure we had a fabulous holiday experience.

See you in 2014 guys!

We just returned from three luxurious nights at the Lumiere Hotel, a boutique hotel, and what a wonderful experience it was!! Being greeted on arrival by Bas, the Assistant General Manager was so special. We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite that was absolutely stunning with beautiful mountain views, state of the art kitchen appliances, a steam shower, and tastefully artistic decorated dining and living rooms Delicious gourmet coffee is provided each morning .
A yummy breakfast is included in the cozy restaurant.
The location is terrific, close to everything one needs to do in Telluride with easy access to the free gondola to historic Telluride or a few steps away to the mountain village. It is also ski in/ ski out.. A car isn't necessary.
What stands out more than anything else is the quality of service and friendliness of the hotel management,
Bas and Clare, as well as Brittany and the rest of the "family" of Lumiere.

Having lived in Colorado for almost 40 years, Telluride and Lumiere keep this beautiful state the way it was when I first moved here.

I can't wait to go back.

We had a great stay at Lumiere on our recent trip to Telluride this summer. Debated about spending this much, but glad we splurged. This is a really luxurious boutique hotel in a very scenic spot. The condo's are very spacious, well decorated and well furnished with top of the line appliances. The steam shower alone would make the stay worthwhile. The beds were comfortable and rooms were quiet.
The continental breakfast was very good with fresh ingredients and a nice selection. The pool area and spa are really nice. The staff was very friendly, professional and helpful. Concierge had great recommendations and really helped accommodate and arrange reservations.
The location of the resort is also very good, just a short walk to the Gondola down into Telluride and in the middle of Mountain Village.
Truly is an exceptional place and look forward to another visit.

We stayed at Lumiere over Film Festival week in August. We loved the quiet, luxurious suite of rooms. Each with a balcony with beautiful views. Staff very attentive and welcoming. Location close to all you could need. Liked it so much we signed up for November return.

My sister and I took a "sister trip" to celebrate our August birthdays at the Lumiere Hotel in Telluride. We were received warmly by the assistant manager, Bas, who gave us a tour of this small, personal, luxurious high end hotel. Our room was way beyond our expectations! We had a cozy, yet spacious, living room and kitchen. The art work was tasteful and the kitchen was up to the highest standards. The bathroom was a room in itself. The bedroom was large and comfortable. Our mountain view was stunning from both the bedroom and the living room. Whenever we needed help or had any questions whatsoever, Brittni or Bas or Clare was there to help us. The hotel staff are all very friendly and ready to help at all times.

Bas and the GM Clare recommended us to take the 4x4 excursion high into the mountains along the Imogene Pass (an old mule track) past the Tomboy Mine and way up to "the top of the world". The guide Roger (from Telluride Outside) was knowledgeable, interesting and enthusiastic. I am very glad that the hotel staff arranged this tour for us.

The hotel is located in a quiet residential street at the top of Telluride. It is a 5-minute walk to the free gondola service that runs from the top of Mountain Village down into the charming, historical town of Telluride. The ride is a 13-minute spectacle on its own. Our 4-day stay in Telluride went by much too quickly. It was very hard to leave the comfort, the location and the personal service provided at the Lumiere Hotel. This is truly a gem, a small shining gold nugget, true to its name "Lumiere", which means "light".

People who are looking for an exclusive, personal, small hotel should definitely consider staying at the Lumiere in Telluride!

This was our first trip to the Rockies and we had only intended to stay in Telluride for a few days and move on, but we received such a nice warm welcome into this lovely hotel by the great team that we found it very hard to leave so we changed our plans and stayed for the duration of our stay in Colorado.

The Hotel is in a prime location in the superb mountain village with easy access to the gondola for a spectacular trip to Telluride town centre; this means that you have very easy access to numerous good quality restaurants coffee shops and bars with no worry of a dedicated driver as your rental car will be parked securely at the Lumiere.

The one bedroom suite that we were allocated was amazing and the views from the various balconies were spectacular, leave the curtains open at night and wake every morning to a stunning view of the mountains!
Everything you need is provided for you in the magnificently appointed suite and you instantly feel at home, my wife cooked some great meals in the well equipped kitchen for our friends (One point to remember is that water boils at a lower temperature at 10,000feet) The bathroom was equally impressive with a fantastic shower that even included a steam function!
I found the under floor heating very easy to use, just set a temperature you want and leave it.

The Lumiere’ s other facilities were all very good too; nice big hot tub that was very welcome after day’s hiking in the mountains, The Little bar served a great continental style breakfast and the most amazing Sushi that must be tried

The management team that run the Lumiere are what really help to take this Hotel to another level, Claire and Bas have a great team that instantly make you feel at home nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff, One really nice touch was the gratuity at checkout policy, This saves you constantly having to worry about carrying money in the hotel all the time.

I highly recommend this Hotel and would love to return in the winter as I could not think of a better place to ski from; The Lumiere is a top class Hotel for all seasons that is professionally managed and maintained to a very high standard.

Many thanks and well done to all the team for making our vacation a really good one.

Room Tip: As far as I could tell all the rooms have a great view as the lower floors are used for the Ski vale...

We spent seven nights at Lumiere in August 2013 and could not have been more pleased and impressed with the quality of the lodging and the service we received. The furnishings in our suite -- particularly the bathroom and kitchen -- were first rate. We had a beautiful view of the mountains from our terrace. The management and staff could not have been more attentive to our every need and request, helping us to plan mountain hikes and debate which restaurant to try next. Breakfasts in the restaurant/bar were a perfect way to start the day and, in the evening, dinner and drinks were outstanding. This is simply an exceptional place to stay.
